Open Society Foundation-Baltimore is pulling together Big Change Baltimore, a TED-style conference for inspiration and action toward the region’s future.

Speakers include former U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Henry Cisneros, NPR Science Correspondent Shankar Vedantam  and NAACP legal defense fund president Sherrilyn Ifill.

Tickets are $125 for the day-long event. OSI is expecting more than 500 people at Center Stage on Calvert Street downtown.
